met with the new jersey and new york delegations and peter king just emerged saying he will now support the speaker for his re-election tomorrow after boehner vowed to call a vote this friday on $9 billion in flood aid. a second vote on the remaining $51 billion aid package will come the first day of legislative action in the 113th congress. let's back spin. i know, guys, on the face of this it would seem a ridiculous and terrible idea for republicans to say no to advancing this aid package. i will just break down very quickly some of the reasons why having talked to a few republicans today. they wanted to pass a clean bill, a. and b, they want to match that spending with cuts. and i know that a balanced budget sounds so 1998, but i think it's kind of a quaint notion worth keeping around. and they knew that advancing this was not going to allow them the opportunity to match that aid with the necessary cuts. and in addition, i think some of them took to the fact that this bill had some unrelated pork in it. like $150 million for alaskan fisheries. some stuff in there that made it
members from the northeast are so, so strong. >> finally, the peter king interview you just did, luke, an hour or so ago, let's play a little bit of that on this subject. >> republicans have no trouble when it comes to raising money. i would just say anyone from new york or new jersey who contributes one penny to congressional republicans after this should have their head examined. >> chris cillizza, kelly, and luke, chris, that was pretty interesting comment to luke. >> pete king is not the kind of guy who holds back. we know that about him, but i think he's genuinely sort of angry and upset. mike grim, a republican from staten island said similar things. kelly hit the nail on the head, i understand how the desire to vote for a bill how some conservative republicans thought it was larded with things that didn't need to be in there, i understand that, but you have to accept how that looks to the wider world outside the halls of that congress. it looks like you are simply leaving without helping these people. you have to understand that, whether it's midnight or 3:00 in the morning or
that were most deeply affected. peter king who is from new york had harsh words for speaker boehner. speaker boehner's office released a statement saying he is dedicated to moving it through by the end of the month. we will have to see if that happens and there is a lot of pressure on him to do that. in terms of the other things they will be focused on, he still has to name a number of his cabinet positions. one of the names that has been floated, normer senator chuck hegel and he got criticism for comments he made and president obama signalled that that criticism has not dissuaded him. >> from honolulu, thank you very much. >> how is it possible that this is a political issue. we are here today and we can vote on this. the votes are clearly there. >> up next, more on the out rage over speaker boehner's decision to adjourn the house without passing sandy relief. just in, we will have that all for you next. at optionsxpress we're all about options trading. we create easy to use, powerful trading tools for all. look at these streaming charts! they're totally customizable and they let you visua
of superstorm sandy. this is how republican peter king responded this morning. >> john boehner has been personally helpful over the years, so it pains me to say this, but the fact is, the dismissive attitude that was shown last night towards new york, new jersey, connecticut, typifies, i believe, a strain in the republican party. we cannot believe that this cruel knife in the back was delivered to our region. >> now, unfortunately, these leaders will still need to work together, and soon. with one deadline down last night, the president has already begun positioning himself for the next fight. >> we'll negotiate over many things. i will not have another debate with this congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they've already racked up through the laws that they passed. let me repeat. we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. >> the debt ceiling is coming, the sequesters are coming. cue the next countdown clock. joining us now from washington, the sage of capitol hill, hardest-working man in news business, nbc's luke russert. the first question i have to ask
congressman peter king said it was "cruel knife in the back." this is all about optics and politics. speaker boehner couldn't stomach more spending last night. but his political game affects real americans, americans who have suffered. people who have lost everything. this is why boehner leads the worst congress of all times. i agree with governor christie. shame on you. joining me now is congressman frank palone, democrat from new jersey. congressman, first, thanks for being here tonight. >> thank you. >> the victims in your state are waiting for help. what is your response to this political game this speaker is playing? >> well, it's absolutely deplorable. the fact of the matter is that the speaker got through that fiscal cliff vote last night. and he decided to pull the sandy relief bill because he was afraid of the tea party and the right wing republicans that hthy shouldn't have to vote for another expensive bill. this wouldn't have happened if it was louisiana or alabama. we've been waiting nine weeks for this relief funding. and every other natural disaster, hurricane ckatrina, tornad

. shame on you, mr. speaker. >> sort of a rare bit of bipartisanship, there speaker. you had peter king, a republican, eliot dangel there, a democrat. was this a mistake to end the 112th congress on this note? >> well, certainly, i think it would have been much more reasonable to try and pass the relief measure. there was a little bit of technical problem there in that the house was dealing with two separate measures, so there was some question as to whether the senate could get back and they could reconcile the two. i'm sure that this will be the first thing on the agenda, either thursday or friday of this week, or as soon as we come back. but, yeah, it's typical of the dysfunction of this 112th congress that the session ended that way. we really have a hard time getting anything done here. >> congressman, i want to turn to sort of the thing that's drawing so much attention, which is the fiscal cliff deal and its aftermath. a lot of liberals in the house voted against this deal. many liberals said they thought it gave up too much, that the president conceded too much when you didn't ha
that man peter king from new york and others from new jersey, areas still dealing with the storm that destroyed whole communities in late october. you may recall governor christie stood with president obama after the disaster, and some thought that was a political move. withholding the aid was perhaps another political move but either way christie didn't hesitate to point a finger earlier today. >> there's only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims. the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. >> reporter: but 90 minutes later new york representative said two votes for funding are forthcoming, one on friday for 9 billion in flood insurance and one in two weeks on another 51 billion. >> whatever reason the speaker decided not to bring it to a vote this week, obviously we disagreed were that and that's in the past. the bottom line is between friday morning and january 15th, those two votes, will bring in $60 billion that's absolutely necessary for new york, new jersey and connecticut. >> king obviously softening his tone from earlier. clear
this vote. >> peter king, slamming his fist, congressman israel, are you angry as well? >> absolutely. i hope i don't get peter king in trouble, but a grow with him. just when we avoided one cliff, the house republicans threw us over another. we rushed to aid in cab sxul baghdad when they had damage, but when it comes to aid to new york and new jersey, the house republican leadership decided we weren't worth it. it is indefensible. >> thank you for joining us. a crazy night. glad you made it to the other side. >>> what it was like to be in the room with the republicans voting on this. reaction from marsha blackburn of tennessee. >> also ahead, 22 minutes past the hour. with the fiscal cliff deal in place, what about you? what about your 401(k). what could happen on wall stleet? we'll talk with that ahead. >> when kids arrive back in school. they will be greeted by a new site. armed guards. the new normal it's being called. that's next. you're watching "starting point." as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking
